SMCA works hard to remain current with the technologies of our day and seeks to integrate these resources into the student's learning environment to advance their learning experiences and provide them with valuable tools to apply in going forward.
Our mobile computer lab has 25 Apple MacBook Pros which students have access to on a regular basis,. Every teacher has access to a computer throughout the day and uses them to implement teaching tools, record administrative information, and communicate with parents.
Our goal is computer integration within our Elementary and Secondary Divisions. Currently we offer an advanced computer class elective for high school students (grades 9-12). This class builds on a basic knowledge of common applications to explore more advanced features of the programs and develop essential technological skills. Each secondary classroom is equipped with Mimio Smartboard capability and it is our goal to have this technology in every classroom from K5 and up.
SMCA is pleased to use RenWeb as our primary means of facilitating communication between the school and the home. Through ParentsWeb families have direct access to their student's grades, homework assignments, and attendance records. Parents are also able to communicate directly with teachers, order lunches, and view their financial statements. We also utilize an alert system called ParentAlert to inform parents of emergencies, school closings, early releases, and other important information that comes up throughout the year.
